So I’m new to the Squire community. I hadn’t owned one till now. A coworker told me his buddy had some “old guitars” that had been in his back yard shed for several years and were about to be thrown out. I told him I wanted them. Here’s what they looked like….. The bass really only needed a truss rod adjustment and a good cleaning. I was surprised at how little it took to get it going. The Strat on the other hand had issues. It was obviously allowed to get wet many times over and the neck pocket was actually warped in the direction of the strings’ pull (amongst other issues). The neck, surprisingly, seemed completely unaffected and was in perfect condition…..go figure. Hours of work have paid off though. All problems have been straightened out. What a great pair of players! I believe the Strat is what is referred to as an SE. I couldn’t be more stoked!
